Generally pleased with this product.

The pad/mouse keys seem clunky - hoping this will change with more use, otherwise I will have to by a mouse that clicks smoothly.

Kevin, Chelmsford Business user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
The screen is excellent.
Bad points:
Touchpad freezes for a couple of seconds from time to time - when combined with Windows 8 this can cause your screen to flick from one to another quickly until it unfreezes. Install a Windows 8 start button and things will be okay. Non techies will not know about start apps and will go mad quickly.

Manufacturer's Description

The Compaq CQ58-253SA 15.6" Laptop offers big visuals, generous storage and solid processing power for faster, more fun everyday computing.

Wonderful Windows 8

Computing is easier than ever with the all new Windows 8 operating system that drives this Compaq laptop. A colourful new tiled interface works on an app-driven basis and is incredibly easy to navigate and get to grips with.

With live updates, the customisable new Windows Start screen keeps you in the loop with everything that’s important to you. It uses a gesture-based interface that makes it simple to navigate through all of your apps and documents.

A cloud connection gives simple to access your documents and apps from any of your devices, so you’re always connected. Elsewhere, the Windows Store provides access to hundred of downloadable apps which can even work together for more streamlined computing.

Since Windows 8 can run on low-powered processors, it helps to improve the battery life of your laptop, so you can use your computer all day.

Hefty hardware

Driven by a 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i3-2328M processor, the CQ-58253-SA runs quickly and efficiently, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM ensuring smooth running of multiple applications. You can even choose to upgrade the RAM to 8 GB DDR3 if you need extra power.

A 500 GB hard drive gives you loads of space to store all your important documents, photographs, videos and songs. It’s a good-sized drive that keeps things uncluttered running well.

Dynamic display and sounds

Videos, photos and web pages will be rendered in pleasingly sharp definition on the back-lit, 1366 × 768p HD Brightview LED display. At 15.6”, it’s certainly big enough to both work and be entertained on.

The Compaq CQ-58253S-A Laptop is fitted with a pair of high-quality Altec Lansing speakers, pushing out sublime, rich bass, cutting mid-range and high frequencies that are as clear as a bell. You audio visual content will be so much more enjoyable, from movies to music and more.
